Asda, Aldi, Tesco, Sainsbury's shoppers getting free £75 vouchers to spend 'within 72 hours'

Households can get free cost of living supermarket vouchers worth £75 as part of the Household Support Fund. Asda, Tesco, Morrisons, Sainsbury's, Aldi and Lidl shoppers can claim free £75 vouchers to spend in store after the Conservative Party extended the scheme.

West Sussex County Council recently confirmed that it was going to provide supermarket vouchers to households that were struggling. If successful, the supermarket vouchers will be issued to the email in the application and can take up to 72 hours to arrive.

The council explained: "The Government has announced the continuation of the Household Support Fund, to provide support between 1 April 2024 and 30 September 2024. Local councils have been allocated funding by UK Government to support residents in need across the county.

"£421m has been made available to County Councils and Unitary Authorities in England to support those most in need with the cost of essentials via the Household Support Fund.

"The expectation is that the fund is intended to cover a wide range of low-income households in need, including families with children of all ages, pensioners, unpaid carers, care leavers and disabled people, larger families, single-person households, and those struggling with one-off financial shocks or unforeseen events."

iIt adds: "Applicants who meet the criteria will receive a one-off financial support offering per household during the 6-month period. Support by way of information advice and guidance, including signposting, will continue to be available to all West Sussex residents throughout the full fund duration."

You don’t have to be receiving benefits to access help from your local council. If you do receive benefits, they won’t be affected when making an application via this scheme. The council adds: "Where possible we will normally provide vouchers as the primary support offering. If you have any queries regarding vouchers, including how to claim them, you can find comprehensive guides and information below."
